Zombie Interpreter processes

      When we restart Zeppelin server (main process), in many cases, Interpreter
      process keeps running, essential becoming a zombie processes.

      In case of Spark interpreter, it also holds SparkContext - consuming server-side resources too.

      As discussed in users@ and dev@ mailing lists, other users have confirmed this problem too.
      Please see [Interpreter zombie processes|http://apache-zeppelin-users-incubating-mailing-list.75479.x6.nabble.com/Interpreter-zombie-processes-td4738.html.

      I have also seen similar issues even using zeppelin-ddeamon but didn't have much time to investigate the issue when it was happening to me.

      I believe I see this before too.

      Have similar experience, although hard to say what's the reason as all process supposed to killed, as Moon pointed out.
      Also noticed that with `mvn tests`, after almost every run, there are 1-2 zombie RemoteInterpreter processes hanging around.

      We are seeing this problem as well, regularly actually. Especially in
      situations when we have many concurrent interpreters running.

      How to reproduce
      1. Start Zeppelin
      2. Run a paragraph \w any interpreters -> RemoteInterpreterServer process will be shown up (check by ps -ef | grep RemoteInterpreterServer)
      3. Stop Zeppelin
      4. check ps -ef | grep RemoteInterpreterServer again
